What Are The Real Effects Of HGTV and Houzz On The Design Industry?

Although I prefer to lurk in online groups as a rule—unless I run them—I recently saw a thread about a publication I used to love and it’s offer for cheap design services so I found myself chiming in. It started out interesting and potentially educational but like a lot of online talk, a couple of […]

Is Your Interior Design Firm A Good Citizen?

I hope your 4th of July (Canada Day for those of you who live in the North) was spectacular and that you took a moment to think about how lucky you are to be free to run a business that is an expression of what you were called to do. Philanthropy and social responsibility are important […]

Bullard And The Billionaire Whisperer

In 1905, at the age of 40, Miss Elsie de Wolfe gave up her struggling acting career for good and set up residence at the historic Washington Irving House with Miss Elizabeth Marbury, a prominent theatrical agent. The combination of de Wolfe’s style and Marbury’s connections transformed Irving House into the American version of a […]

My Interview With Kelly Hoppen

In Branding Visibility By Kim Kuhteubl

Most designers are educated enough about the design process to know that getting published is an important part of building their brand.

How Do You Choose To Lead?

In Business Strategy Visibility By Kim Kuhteubl

In 1908, 15,000 women marched through New York City demanding shorter hours, better pay and voting rights. It was the culmination of unrest and critical debate that had been occurring with the expansion caused by industrialization at the start of the 1900s. A year later, on the 28th day of February, the first National Woman’s […]

The First Choice Is Not Always The Right Choice

In Visibility By Kim Kuhteubl

I love award shows and I’m particularly excited about the Oscars this year because I’ve had the opportunity to screen most of the films and also because I’m heading to a party hosted by the Producers Guild. I’m rooting for Whiplash and The Theory of Everything, films that were character-driven, high-stakes emotionally and beautifully acted […]

In Business Strategy Visibility Wealth By Kim Kuhteubl

Recently a client of mine was going through the hiring process for her team. She had narrowed it down to the final two and told me she was going to check references. I suggested that she pay each of the gals to come in for a day, or even two, to get a sense of […]

Get The Team You Really Want

In Business Strategy Visibility By Kim Kuhteubl

I move quickly.  I think fast.  I talk fast and for the most part, I solve problems fast.  I’ve always been this way.  It’s probably why I was drawn to production. In one of my early Supervising Producer roles in LA, I took over mid-season and had to manage a team of people I didn’t […]

Sometimes You Have To Burn The Bridge

In Blog Visibility By Kim Kuhteubl

Most of us have learned that it’s not a good idea to burn bridges, because we think of that concept in terms of relationships.  But what if we reframe it in terms of risk?  Burn the bridges that keep you “safe”, that keep you from diving into running your business and your life with all […]

The Price Of Fashion

In Lifestyle Visibility By Kim Kuhteubl

I finally gave in and bought another pair of sunglasses.  Earlier this year I had invested in my first pair of Chanel’s. I thought the price was ridiculous at first, until I prorated the daily cost based on my usage living in Southern California, which turned out to be less than $1/day. They came numbered, with […]
